Georgian Gypsy | 1988 Ericson 32-200

Owen Sound, ON, CA

About

The Ericson 32-200 is the 4th generation result of a long development series of 32 footers at Ericson that gives us this fine racer/cruiser design. Offering both very rewarding sailing characteristics and a well thought out cruising interior for up to 6 people, we have a very well designed sailing yacht, with good build quality throughout.

Equipped with many recent updates such as new autopilot, solar panels, batteries, cockpit canvas and more.

The boat is ready to sail, and was sailing last season. But it does need some work, which could be done by a DIY owner, either now or over time. See the full listing for details.

This boat has been deeply discounted for a quick sale to a DIY owner who could greatly increase the value of the boat.

Deck and Cockpit

From the bow, we have the anchor roller leading to the chain locker.

A double railed pulpit keeps the bow area secure, and connects to double lifelines all the way aft to the pushpit railing. Lifeline gates are fitted on both port and starboard. The fiberglass toerail provides additional safety, maintenance free. Handrails are mounted on the cabin top.

The shrouds are terminated well inboard, making for easy passage up and down the wide sidedecks without the “cheese grater” effect on many design. Inboard chainplates give great headsail sheeting angles, too.

The cockpit is sheltered with a dodger, bimini and connecting piece that were custom made on new stainless steel tubular frames in 2022.

The tee-shaped cockpit provides good seating, including a raised saddle for the helmsperson.

The binnacle houses the steering compass and some displays.

Access to the water is by way a good tubular stainless steel ladder on the transom.

Sails and Rig

The aluminum spar is keel stepped and well supported with double spreaders and fore-and-aft lower shrouds.

The forestay carries the Harken furling unit, while the backstay is a centerline attached single stay.

Both the mast and aluminum boom are painted white.

Winches:

  • 2x #24 Barient 2-speed self-tailing Primary Winches
  • 3x #10 Barient Cabin Top Winches
  • 1x #18 Barient Cabin Top Winch

All control lines necessary for sailing are lead aft to the cockpit to enable safe, secure single-handed or short-handed sailing.

Accommodations and Interior

Starting from the bow, we have the vee berth area providing a nice double bunk with cushions in good condition. A removable filler panel is fitted or can be stowed. The main hatch overhead allows light, fresh air and egress if necessary.

Next aft we have the main salon with settees port and starboard, facing the centerline drop leaf table. Lots of room for entertaining, and both settees can be used as single bunks. The tropical frond themed upholstery is in good condition. Lots of good stowage areas outboard of the settees. Fixed and opening portlights with an overhead hatch provide plenty of light and fresh air.The teak and holly sole runs throughout.

Aft on port we have the galley with double stainless steel sink, with hot and cold pressure water of course. Cooking utilizes the VoltWorks inverter to power a microwave oven and the induction hotplate, and of course there is a propane BBQ outside.

Opposite the galley we have the private enclosed head compartment complete with marine toilet and washbasin, with hot and cold pressure water of course.

Finally we have the aft cabin with its double bunk covered with new ( 2023 ) custom cut 6″ thick memory foam mattress. Three opening ports into the cockpit provide plenty of light and ventilation.

Work Required

The windows have a history of leaking. A few will drip slightly in a heavy rain, but they all need to be pulled and re-bedded. And the wood trim under them has been damaged by the moisture and needs to be pulled and replaced. A hand DIY person should be able to handle this work. It doesn’t even need to be done this season – a bit of caulking or tape might suffice until you can get the job done properly.

The decks have some moisture in them in some locations, but are not obviously soft. These areas can be repaired one at a time over a period of years. or all at once if desired. Basic core repair or replacement is something a DIY person can readily learn to do as there are lots of resources available.

Materials cost would be perhaps five hundred dollars for new interior wood and some fiberglass repair materials.

Winter Storage

Included with the boat are seven (7) jack stands to support the boat on the hard in winter.

A sturdy custom wood frame mounts on deck, permitting use of economical bale tarps that last 3 – 5 years or more with care.

Testimonials

As first-time boat buyers and as foreigners wanting to buy a cruising catamaran in the US, we knew we needed a reliable broker that had our best interests in mind. John Heintzman was just that, and more! He was extremely committed to understanding what we were looking for, gave great advice, and guided us through the purchase process with great patience and knowledge. All in all, we felt very well taken care of.

I feel compelled to reach out about the absolutely wonderful experience that I have had with Grant and Patricia Bowlby. I completed the purchase of a boat yesterday and I couldn’t be happier. They were so helpful, kind, and patient. This was my first experience with a broker, and I think I’ve found the best.

I can’t thank Ewan Campbell enough for the super job he did in selling G, making up for my lack of experience in this realm and patiently searching for just the right buyer and a win-win for seller and buyer alike.

It was a wonderful experience selling A with Jeff Cole’s expert assistance. Thank you for simplifying a complicated process. Your patience and kindness are especially appreciated.

I just wanted to thank Jeff Cole for all his hard work. He was very professional and effective.
